    Hey Glenn, or who ever else wants to help out a family debate. I was told tonight that the new Beatles One CD has already sold 18 million copies. I say bullshit. No way one album has sold THAT many albums that quickly. Not that is doesn't warrant it, but no way. One month or so, and already 18 mill? I've got some serious coin on this people, so don';t jive me on this. LOL. Out.

    Check this thread out from BeatleLinks. If you read it, a few posts in it says that it's sold 12 million already, and I'm not sure that particular post wasn't made a bit ago. At first I was inclined to dispute 18 million because that is ungodly huge sales. But who knows, unfortunately I'm not sure. If so, that's unbelievable.

    Reading that thread a bit closer, it shows 18 million to include 8 other titles as well as the new one. Here's that part.

    In further news: Billboard reports that the sales of 1 and their back catalogue combine to make The Beatles the biggest selling recording act of 2000 in the US.
    "Combining the Beatles' hits collection "1" (5 million), with eight Capitol Records catalog titles, the group was certified for more than 18 million copies sold in 2000, the highest for any artist"

    T5, if I'm reading your first post right, you say the Beatles 1 album didn't sell 18 million, and that's correct, at least according to the second post I made in this thread. It was a combination of Beatles albums that sold that total.

    Get that 100 bucks back man, I think you're correct here.

    If not, there goes my step-beta brother status.

    Well Glenn I still shot my mouth off about the 18 million thing. My cousin obviously heard what you just said in your last post. She said that Beatles 1 one sold 18 million copies. She heard it on the radio. I said, "No freakin' way that it is even close!" "Hell it just came out, and maybe it has sold a couple million." I was way the hell off wasn't I. LOL. Don't worry buddy, your Beta Stepbrother satus is still intact. LOL. Oh and trying to get my money back from her, not a chance. Hell there is a better chance of a new album comming out tomorrow than me getting that money back. I'll just chock this up to, "Don't write a check your butt can't cash t5." A life lesson as it were. LOL. Out.
